Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, December 1, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Left home at noon today to return to N.Y. Jake Sharp and his wife and daughter with me, who went home to Elizabeth. We had had a pleasant visit from them which I think they enjoyed very much. Found Mrs. Weeler's, Dora's and Mrs. Custers cards and a letter from Lucy. I couldn't help a discouraging feeling on arriving here. There were bills to pay and just before I left home my father told me of school tax to pay and just now all these things crowd together to trouble me. I miss dear Gertrude more and more when these times of discouragement visit me. I try not to me troubled but I cannot help it. Attended a meeting of the Council for the first time this winter. Mr. Huntington was not there and I presided.
